Black August
06 Aug 2007
An important cause that Jane Bowell of SoulfulChemistry,com and Jeff Fisher, her future husband want the people in Boston, Massachusetts to know all about. This information can be addressed and rectified faster when IndyMedia decides to publish the absolute truth world-wide about why I am testifying against Vice President Richard B Cheney. Please read "The Heart and Soul of the Nation" by Jeff Fisher that the NAACP made possible last July.

I am the man who was rushed out by security on July 20, 2006 when George Bush decided to visit the Convention after six years of dissing all African Americans who desire true equality. The secret service had a great time with me getting further information since they had been investigating identity theft and the 2000 election coup even prior to that election. The cover up must be revealed world-wide.

I was unable to attend the July 27th 2004 Democratic Convention with Jim Stork yet I am glad I did not attend.
The path Jesus Christ chose for me was to discover the absolute horror of BayPoint School instead. Please thank Senator Edward Kennedy and Congressman Patrick Kennedy for all there help. Just last week I fulfilled a wish for Rose Kennedy at the Eternal Flame. Justice will prevail for all.

Honoring a History and Legacy of African Resistance:

Black August

We have a difficult time even educating one another about how dramatic African resistance to captivity only rationally meant a bolt, or a leap or some relative action figure kind of response.

We see this articulated here in this piece entitled "Black People Resisted" in which the author clearly describes a battle for one's very survival.

Only several years ago, someone used the analogy of flipping someone's body off of you in a physical assault to describe how senseless conservative rationale really is. I didn't need to have this explained to me, but it did give me a different way to feel it.

He asked me to imagine someone's weight is pressed against you in the midst of battle. You can not be conservative, he explained, in getting this person off of you. You must take extraordinary, progressive measures - such as a push or a thrust to send this person on their way.

So it is true then that a distinguisable, but nonetheless brave and definitive set of works, resistance and skill will be required to dominate the condition in which Black folk find ourselves.

After all, as quiet as it may be kept, the masses of Black people who hail from all walks and means of life, but who are predominantly economically ostracized and disenfranchised do have the right to dominate our ability to survive and prosper in ways that are not defined in a White supremacist framework.

In fact, even certain and in fact most White people will be liberated (so to speak) once they are relinquished of their self assigned duties as masters of "the perfect word universe trichnological fork tongue."

Black August is a critical space in time much more pertinent and important than Black History Month etc. as it exposes and distinguishes those who wrote, spoke, protested, challenged, fought and died railing and resisting against White Supremacy and oppression vs. those past and present who are active, mobile, have titles with letters and can demand great modes of attention, but who sat and-or sit on their hands when the time comes to resist the oppressor without ambiguity - meaning without vacillation, double talk, deceptiveness, shuffling, distortion, evasion, hesitancy, changeableness, reserve, vagueness, or indecision.
